Mana Tech continues to dive into the Miami tech scene, exploring what the city’s talented founders and innovators are building. Episode 4 of ‘Mana Tech Talks’ continues to underline the key players that make up this industry.

In the latest episode, we chatted with Fanatiz Co-Founder and CEO Matias Rivera to understand where tech meets sports media. Rivera talked about how the idea of a sports streaming platform originated back in his college years when his friends would struggle to find a legal way to stream soccer games played in South America. Therefore, he and his co-founders developed a solution with Fanatiz, an easy and convenient way to stream live matches and other on-demand sporting events.

The project originated in the Bay Area, continued in Chile, and finally established a home in Miami.

In 2018, we chose to come to the U.S. through Miami for several reasons: Latin American roots and connectivity, strong presence of the sports industry, logistics of the time zone with Chile, access to capital, and that the people in Miami are happier.

The company’s goal is to enhance the fan experience, providing a simple platform to watch their favorite teams play. With this in mind, Miami was the perfect location in order to keep building the Fanatiz user community.

“Fans are at the center of what we do,” emphasizes Rivera as he talks about their mission. The platform is geared toward soccer games for Latin American fans. However, Fanatiz offers a variety of content in both Spanish and English.
